Phillies Need To Start Cheating Again

Binocular Gate occurred on May 10th in Colorado. Since Mick Billmeyer was caught "cheating with technology" the Phillies have gone on a massive offensive slide. Their record since that ill-fated date- 8 wins to 10 losses, and in 12 of those 18 games they've been held to 3 runs or less. It all may just be coincidental, but it sure does appear that the conspiracy theory behind the Phillies being cheaters has some merit. The Dodgers, Mets, and Rockies have all accused them of such and maybe the accusations hold water, because look at what happens when cheating is eliminated. Charlie Manuel and company are going to have to get creative now that MLB in on the lookout for sneaky sign stealing shenanigans. Perhaps the Phils should try relaying messages via satellite with a receptor in the batting helmets, use Morse Code, or resort to terroristic threats. Anything to get this offense back on track. Bottom line, the Phillies need to start cheating again.

Flyers may need to start cheating too apparently

GM-Carson said...

The NHL already cheats with those stupid new rules.

Corey said...

what new rules?

GM-Carson said...

2-line passes are now legal, red-line ignored for offsides. Blue-lines moved closer together to allow more room for offensive zones.

Makes for too high of scoring games in my opinion.

Coming from someone who doesn't watch too much hockey, it seems like the Flyers are getting relatively quality shots on Niemi and he's turning them away. he had a hell of a game last night.

And the worst rule change of all is the soccer-esque use of a shootout to settle ties after regulation. In the regular season there's no reason to break ties! But if you must do it, at least do it with something that resembles the game you've been playing, not a skills competition gimmick. The baseball equivalent to the shootout tiebreaker would be to select 3 players from each team and hold a HR Derby to settle a tie after 9 innings (or maybe play one extra inning with 8 defensive players) THEN have a HR Derby.

more of the same.... maybe the rain will save us.

Corey said...

wow, how unlucky was cole hamels that he gave up that three run homer. will his luck ever change?

/dies from over-sarcasm...

GM-Carson said...

I still currently hate the Phillies.

GM-Carson said...

Wait, so Tim Hudson coming a year removed from major arm surgery comes back after the rain delay, but young Cole Hamels can't. Pussy!

Aaron said...

cole has to sit after the delay but hudson can still pitch??? HMMMMMMM.

Fuck the Phillies. The whole team sucks. See you next year.
